“I’ve been here for 12 years. This will be my 13th year here, it’s been an honor for me to serve on the board of South Nyack,” said Neff. “It’s a great board and we’re welcoming in a new member (McCue). We expect great things from her.”
“This is my first experience in public service and I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to serve the community,” said McCue. “I plan to work hard with our new mayor and with the fellow board trustees on issues that are important to us, particularly the issue of the Tappan Zee bridge, it’s build and its impact on the residents of South Nyack.”
- Incumbent Trustee Thomas Neff has long focused on insuring that South Nyack’s interests are heard by the State. He is a retired NYC Transit Police Inspector and has worked with the Nyack Ambulance Corps since 1999.
- Catherine McCue, currently the president of Salisbury Point Co-operative, has been instrumental in organizing meetings with the NYS Thruway Authority and residents of Salisbury Point to discuss potential impacts of the TZ bridge project.
Last month, South Nyack Mayor Patricia “Tish” DuBow has announced that she will not seek re-election, according to the Village of South Nyack. She supported Trustee Bonnie Christian, who ran unchallenged for the mayor’s position.
"I want to thank the Village and the Board for their support. We’ve got a little fight uphill for us,” said Christian. "I intend to look out for South Nyack. We are not a little village, we are the village that’s going to be affected and we’re not going to let anybody steamroll over us, I guarantee that. I also want to thank Tish for her committment to the Village. She did an amazing job."
As a trustee in 2012, Christian served on the Zoning Board of Appeals for four years and the Planning Board for seven. She recently retired as Director of Customer Programs for Gannett Co., Inc. Christian, a lifelong resident of the Nyacks, is a graduate of Nyack High School and Dominican College and received an MA at Seton Hall University.
